She Says - Poem by RoseMarie Mitchell

When we go out to dinner, she says, “Don’t hold your chicken with your hands, it is low class”
“Don’t tell people your business. You know how you like to talk”
“Don’t answer the phone every time he calls, he’ll take you for granted”
“Don’t tell him all your business, he’ll know too much about you”
“Don’t comb your hair like that, it makes you look too old”
“Don’t let people take advantage of you, learn to speak up for yourself”
“Don’t come into the house with your shoes, I can’t afford a new carpet now.”
“Don’t use all that dishwashing liquid, you are too wasteful”
“Don’t fling your wet hands on the kitchen floor after you wash the dishes, it causes the floor to get dirty”
“Don’t fry chicken on the stove, it makes the stove greasy”
“Don’t leave your papers on the table, it looks too untidy”
“Don’t put on the air-condition, it’s not hot outside”
The last day of my vacation, as I was putting my suitcase in the car,
My sister asked, “When is your next visit? ”
“On my next visit to New York”, I said, “I’ll rent an apartment”

    I liked this. I thought it was your mom at first when I was reading it. It was surprising it was your sister. Maybe an 'older' sister. Smile. Anyway, I enjoyed this. Take care. Sincerely, Connie Webb (Report) Reply
